Helloooooo! I was merrily chuntering away to myself on the old thread. I'm here now on the first sausage shuttle I could board.

2cats222 Fri 25-Jan-13 19:05:31

Wankbollocks I have sausage fingers on iPhone... 2nd attempt... Amazingly chuffed at sausage wanging in the tempted to steal a variance for my nickname...

2cats222 Fri 25-Jan-13 19:08:23

And it seems according to the daily fail we are no longer the minority... daily_fail_mums_over30

Yes, but in the same article it said that, out of 724,000 births last year, 30,000 involved women over 40. They tried to imply this was a really healthy number but I felt sick and fed up sad

Hello!! <marks spot on shiny new sausage themed thread>

2cats222 Fri 25-Jan-13 19:28:54

Right <deep breath> here goes pissing you all off especially Viv with some weird speculation/symptom spotting that will amount to nothing.
Sorry. Oh and TMI alert. What a beautiful way to start a new thread! Normal cycle 35 days, this cycle O due day of wedding (hence potential to O late due to immense stress but don't know as wasn't temping or using OPKs). LOTS of bedroom shenanigans pre and daily post potential O day. Lots of nice "symptoms" from 10 to 12 days post 'O'. CD34 start AF. BUT have now been bleeding 8 days, day 1-2 very light and red but since has been barely more than brown/pink spotting (max half a lite tampon in 8 hours, or without anything only noticeable when I go to the loo). Normal AF is red regular flow for 5 days with no variance. Am contemplating POAS (could I be Thislady ) or that something is wrong <panics> (err potentially due to some ahem rough sex blush ) My "symptoms" (sorry Viv) were mostly bloating (stomach still hard and big) and itching and spots on my back (still got those beauties) so nothing specific to pregnancy. But never had a period like this in my life. Help!! <re-reads post, admits sounds like a crazy lady, posts, then runs away never to return to see scathing comments of sausage wangers>

2cats222 Fri 25-Jan-13 19:30:27

viv that's a much better chance than the lottery!!! I honestly thought that was a big number <slinks back to corner with tail between legs>

2cats222 Fri 25-Jan-13 19:31:53

Because 600,000 of those are the 16 year old virgins remember...

viviennewestwould Fri 25-Jan-13 19:39:57

First of all, what the fuck are you doing on SoulCysters?? Are they all black women suffering from polycystic ovarian syndrome?

The woman you are talking about probably experienced late implantation (post 12DPO) and that was why she bled. Maybe not. The only way you can be sure is to POAS.

hello, just popping up to confusingly continue the discussion from the old thread and say that like Aquarius, I also get sore boobs starting a couple of dpo and the cycle I don't get sore boobs is the cycle I'll be expecting the BFP. I'm currently on cd33 with AF due on Sunday/Monday, and am already pretty sure I am out for this month.

2cats222 Fri 25-Jan-13 20:03:55

Sorry to hear that retro

Viv blame google, I am not that into black women with PCOS promise! Anyway thanks for giving me instructions to POAS, neg, as expected. So if not pregnant, am i dying?? <reaches for wine>

viviennewestwould Fri 25-Jan-13 20:29:35

Retro, the only time I would ever pay attention to a 'symptom' is if I went to the toilet for a shit and a baby fell out.

SidneyBristow Fri 25-Jan-13 20:35:03

Hey wangers,

DH is glaring at me bc I'm supposed to be watching a DVD with him, but oh well.

Yep Viv we're off tomorrow up North, but it's his family involved, not mine sad (Scottish smiley in an attempt to mix in). Have been v homesick lately for my family back in the US. It should be a fun time, but less than ideal in the TTC department.

I'm a huuuuuuge symptom spotter, at least I was pre-probable-MMC. Before AF came that time, I felt ...different. Very painful boobs, slightly nauseated at all times, constantly smelling things nobody else could, cripplingly tired, terrible backache in my lower back and a very weird, dull ache in my pelvis. It was categorically different than any other feeling I've had before or since, period-wise.

I try not to do it; I know it's crushing to get your hopes up and then realize it's another cycle down the pan. But it is a teensy bit encouraging to feel your body doing odd things, kind of like it's waking up, getting ready for something big.

*Must admit I'm in a v optimistic mood these last few days; found out a good friend's dad has beaten pancreatic cancer, so am feeling like anything's possible

Have a great night, ladies! Fling those sausages with abandon; it's Friday!

viviennewestwould Fri 25-Jan-13 20:40:03

You do realise none of us will ever hear the name Vera Wang without snotting ever again.

viviennewestwould Fri 25-Jan-13 20:41:47

2cats, darling, you are not dying...have you tried pissing on a sausage?

Pipbin Fri 25-Jan-13 22:14:08

Evening Ladies. Lovely new thread.
Well, off to view two houses tomorrow. Hubby is determined not to like either of them so I'm going to have to try and talk him round.

10dpo here, interestingly I have no spotting, but obviously this undoubtedly has much more to do with the lap and dye that actually having the spotting problem cured. I just want to get this AF done and out of the way so I can get back on with ttcing.

Thundercatsarego Fri 25-Jan-13 22:20:21

Hi all, marking my place. Am too boring and weary to even attempt to say anything good so just lurking from my sausage shuttle.

captainmoll Fri 25-Jan-13 22:49:51

happylass Sat 26-Jan-13 08:24:44
